“With Betty’s Delight, viewers become participants with each picking up a plate to break bread together and hanging their plate on the wall once finished.

Through this shared activity the audience is invited to connect and contribute.

This has been the tradition in sewing circles for generations. Sewing circles create a configuration that acts as a fingerprint of the moment, the ritual, and the gathering . . . with no two arrangements alike.

With Betty’s Delight, the plates are re-hung after bread has been broken, creating a new configuration - a new fingerprint - of the gathering and its participants.”
